This review is from: CASE OF 12 – 16 oz. EZ Cap Beer Bottles – AMBER (Kitchen) Customer Video Review Length:: 1:00 Mins The assembly can be troublesome and painful if you don’t do it the right way. Check out my quick video to make assembling the seals a cinch and save your fingers. I have bought two sets of these bottles to use with my homebrew kit from Mr. Beer. I like this product for two reasons: need fewer bottles for a batch of homebrew and it’s easier during the process. FEWER BOTTLESWith a dozen of these 16oz bottles, I get 192oz or 1.5 gallons. I would usually need between 20-22 beer bottles that are 12oz each to bottle a batch of homebrew. Now, I can do the same thing with fewer bottles. The height in my cabinets allows me to store the taller bottles and the greater size frees up some space to have more than one batch going at once. You won’t have as many bottles to share with friends but a pint (16oz) is really a better serving size! EASIER BREWINGFor people who are starting out, Mr. Beer suggests putting 3/4 teaspoons of sugar into each bottle to prime during the carbonation phase. I don’t have a 1/4 teaspoon measure (only 1/2 and 1) so the process is a little guessing. Going under or over is not a big deal but these larger 16oz bottles require 1 teaspoon flat so it’s pretty darn easy to not mess up. Another pro on the brewing process is to not have to keep track of bottle caps or buy them online. You also don’t have to deliberately drink only beers with twist off caps. The plastic caps on these bottles are great. They clamp on well and eliminate the problem of the metal bottle caps. There is one con with this product: assembling it. Nothing hard about putting it together but it does take a little force and can sometimes scratch the glass as you set up the metal prongs onto the bottle. No biggie, though. I need to start looking for labels some time. Maybe I can find some that are washable/reusable so I can easily label each bottle and change them when I fill up with a new batch. If anybody knows of good re-usable labels, please let me know! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (10) Reply 96 of 100 people found the following review helpful Do not understand, 4 pack Grolsch 15.2oz full, $8.25, October 28, 2013 By reddwar – This review is from: CASE OF 12 – 16 oz. EZ Cap Beer Bottles – AMBER (Kitchen) I have started making Kombucha tea & need some ceramic swivel-top bottles to put it into. Checked ebay for empty bottles, looked here, also checked with my package store. A 4 pack of Grolsch beer ‘Wednesday 15% off” is $8.25 walking out the door, so 12 15.2 oz bottles are only $24.75. The cheapest bottles by far are full of beer at my liquor store. Now to save money, all I have to do is empty those full bottles of Grolsch beer, so I can fill them up with Kombucha tea. Not sure my wife is going to believe me when I tell her I am drinking beer to save money? Yes I do find that strange, but true. That I can get ceramic swivel-top bottles full of real good beer cheaper, than empty bottles. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (7) Reply 113 of 121 people found the following review helpful Not exactly what you think…. but after several uses they are working great, December 2, 2012 By Geoffrey S. Buck – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: CASE OF 12 – 16 oz. EZ Cap Beer Bottles – AMBER (Kitchen) These bottles are not exactly what you think – you think they would be just like grolsh bottles but…. the bottles themself are good quality except no design on them as pictured- no biggy…. but it’s the cap that is different and in a major way. The white cap comes not assempled – no problem … the problem is they are not porcelin they are plastic and worse the rubber gasket is permenantly glued to the plastic white cap…. the key to grolsh bottle is these gaskets are made to replace – cause they only last for about 8 uses I’ve been told ! so this is a key differnce and I do not see any place where you can get an entire replacement cap!! Ok. Update. I used these and worked great. Bottles are high quality. I haven’t had to replace gaskets yet, but I’ll let you know how that goes …… Latest update – after several uses – still working great 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (9) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
